Rare Bird Flies Home For Good

Some ignorant twit in the Denver suburbs had been keeping a nearly extinct, illegally smuggled Spix’s macaw in a teeny cage for twenty-five years, and had been taking very poor care of it. The species is extinct in the wild and there are only sixty in captivity. And those born in captivity are in-bred. At least poor “Presley” is finally going home. He’s being sent to Brazil to try to save the species. He’s had some of his cells multiplied and frozen for safekeeping, is finally being fed more nourishing food and has been given suitable perches. Hopefully it’s not too little too late.
